Focusrite Scarlett 8i6 3rd Gen

The Scarlett 8i6 3rd Gen from Focusrite is a robust and powerful audio interface, like the rest of the Scarlett series, that is perfect for the musician who wants to track on tour, or someone who has a lot of hardware, but not a huge amount of microphone dependent recoding concerns. One of the smartest additions to the 8i6 3rd Gen is its implementation of a switchable air mode that occurs on the interface's preamps. Air adds a level of brightness and openness to your recordings that allows them to sit more presently in your mix. The interface features two XLR-1/4" inputs and six balanced line inputs for the connection of even more gear! Additionally, the interface features four balanced outputs, so that in addition to a clean monitoring signal, you can connect outboard gear as well. This makes the 8i6 great for medium sized studios and producers!
